The inn featured in Hiroshige's print no longer exists.  None of the 20 or more inns survive.  In fact, only a few rooms of an inn are preserved at a building that was converted to a restaurant.  This room is on the second floor and it looks as if a traveler just stepped away for a few mintues.  To the right is a traditional lamp with a paper shade.
